Black Baptists, college form partnership

Georgetown College in Georgetown, Kentucky
Officials from four leading African-American Baptist conventions gathered at a historically white Baptist college in Kentucky and launched a new partnership.

Meeting at Georgetown College in Georgetown, Kentucky, the leaders agreed on an arrangement that will include archiving important African-American resources and increasing the number of minority students at the predominately white school, located near Lexington.

Georgetown president William Crouch on August 8 called the partnership an opportunity to relate to a larger segment of the Baptist family. He will promote the arrangement at national gatherings of the conventions. Likewise, convention leaders will be invited to campus regularly.
